Endoscopic subureteral injection for the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux in children: Polydimethylsiloxane (Macroplastique) versus dextranomer/hyaluronic acid copolymer (Deflux).
But when the researchers gently pulled a lizard's foot away, the footpads stuck to Teflon AF with twice as much strength as they did to polydimethylsiloxane, Izadi and his colleagues report July 9 in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface.
The 'Concise Analysis of the International and Chinese Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) Industry' is a professional and in-depth study on the current state of the global Polydimethylsiloxane industry with a focus on the Chinese situation.
During enrichment the FMSA device was retained between 2 sealing O-rings formed from polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) (DOW Corning) and clamped within a plastic housing.
In a new protocol recently published in Nature Methods, Radisic's team suspended a surgical suture made of silk above a long thin channel made of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), which was bathed in a cell culture medium.
15) synthesized a series of interpenetrating polymer networks using PU and polydimethylsiloxane.
The silicon substrates being used are not limited to: polydimethylsiloxane, amorphous silica, petroleum distillates, methyltriacetoxy silane, or ethyltriacetoxy silane through which sensors may be embedded into to enable the detection platform.
4) Several authors have noted that the presence of the element silicon can be demonstrated in the distribution of the refractile material seen in hematoxylin-eosin-stained sections by scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive x-ray analysis (SEM/EDXA) (Figures 3 and 4), and infrared spectroscopy (IR) can confirm that the material has the spectral characteristics of polydimethylsiloxane (silicone) (not illustrated).
The microfluidic structure was also fabricated using silicon and glass, which provide greater accuracy and reproducibility for commercial application, in comparisonwith polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) polymeric-based chips.
Other materials of choice for this application include polyvinyl butyral , ionomers, thermoplastic urethane (TPU), and polydimethylsiloxane (silicone rubber).
Modern lab-on-chip devices are hybrids that combine glass, silicon and various polymers like acrylic, polyester, polycarbonate, resists, thermoplastics or molds like the polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS).
